Fabio De Luigi,
It was supposed to be a comedy, but I didn't laugh much...
I remember having seen the trailer for this movie when it came out last year, just before Christmas. It made it look like a quite decent comedy. I admit, I'm not into this genre at all, but a cousin of mine spoke very warmly of it, so I decided to see it. It was boring 90 % of the time. I probably laughed once and smiled other two times... Maybe seeing it into a theater makes a difference, but at home we all felt like we wanted our time back! The actors were quite good, but I guess they weren't working with good material. There was a lot of singing and the Christmas songs weren't bad and they were even very well performed, but I wasn't planning to watch a musical! The story is nothing special and neither are the jokes. I wouldn't recommend it to any of my friends!
